A small town emergency

Today, at about noon, an employee was working on a propane tank in Lincoln, when an emergency happened in a heartbeat. We've all had that feeling in the pit of our stomachs when something like this happens, but when it's close to home that pit feels like a watermelon. Within minutes, avacuations began to occur and as of five and a half hours later, thousands are out of their houses and filling the evacuation shelters. As I sit here and type this, I wonder how long it will be before I'm told that we need to evacuate. Please pray for all the emergency workers, volunteers who are helping, and those affected by this.
